Afraid to pull the trigger

by - January 5, 2009 - Posted in On Jerry

Jean-Jacques Taylor at the Dallas Morning News feels no sorrow for Jerry.

Jerry, the man who made hundreds of millions speculating on whether oil was at the bottom of a hole, has lost his nerve. I never thought I’d say that, but it’s true.

He’s scared to take a chance, whether it’s hiring a known commodity like former Denver coach Mike Shanahan – flaws and all – or an unknown commodity like former Cowboys secondary coach and current Dolphins assistant Todd Bowles, who was well-respected by the players and comes with Parcells’ approval.

Jerry has put himself in this position by undermining every head coach he’s ever had not named Jimmy or Bill.

Your thoughts?

Jerry won't fire the marshmallow Wade because he can control Wade. He didn't like Parcell's or Johnson because they were strong coaches that didn't like him poking around in the day to day football business. Until Jerry's mentality changes and he realizes that he needs to stay out of the everyday football business, the Cowboys will continue to struggle.

I won't lie… part of me wants Jerry to go all the way with his GM duties and name himself head coach. Maybe then he'll realize how hard it really is.

For the record, I've never been an NFL head coach, so I do not know how difficult the job truly is.

“Shanahan won't take any bs from anyone….” Which is exactly why Jerry would never hire him.
